Discover The "Unburied Treasure" Of The Gentle Giant Catalog With Their New Box Set

On December 6th, the classic U.K. progressive rock band, Gentle Giant will unleash a 30-disc box set that showcases the band's live side with 15 brand new concert albums, as well as their 12 studio albums. Most of the these shows have never been previously released and further develops the band's cult status here in the U.S. The set also includes a 136-page coffee table book, plus a 96-page book on the band's touring history, along with replica posters, a signed photo and other giveaway and promotional items. This set is only limited to 2000 copies and is fully embraced by the band members who have come together to view the box set for the first time in this video on youtube.com.

The live shows in this new set sound outstanding for the time period. Some of the highlights include the band's wonderful harmonizing on "Alucard," before breaking into an intense jam during a show in New Orleans in 1972. Gentle Giant showcase their masterfully musical skills on the extended jams of "Excerpts From Octopus" and "Just The Same/Proclamation," which both blow past the ten minute mark. One of the later shows in this set is from The Roxy in 1980 and may not be the best recording of the set, but displays the band's growth as artists and performers during their ten year run.
